Your smile is among the first things that others notice about you. If you’re unhappy with your smile, it can affect your whole outlook on life. With all the advances that have been made in the field of cosmetic dentistry, there’s no need for anyone to settle for a less-than-dazzling smile.

Experienced
Like Dr. Tejas Patel at the Center of Cosmetic & General Dentistry in Austin, Texas, your cosmetic dentist should have extensive experience in the field and be trained in porcelain veneers, bonding, tooth whitening, laser dentistry, orthodontics, implants, porcelain fillings and crowns. Up to date

He or she should keep abreast of the latest developments by enrolling in continuing education courses, preferably at an institution that is renowned for its innovative education and training. Dr. Patel enrolls in 100 hours of continuing education each year, much of it at the renowned Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

Comfortable office
Take time to visit the Austin cosmetic dentistry office. Is the reception area comfortable, the staff warm and welcoming? If you are nervous about dental treatment, ask about the availability of sedation dentistry.

Many dental practices keep an album of “before” and “after” photos-ask to see some photos of actual guests who have undergone the same treatment you are planning.
